Hello Oz Ben,
A beautiful colour palette and fine details in the butterfly.
The good light really makes the colours stand out, and the green background enhances the subject.
A fine dynamic composition.Regards Sigi

Hello OZ,
What a gorgeous butterfly you have presented to us. The colors and markings are simply stunning to say the least. Outstanding detail and perfectly exposed with a nice clean BG. Great shot!!

This is an absolutely pretty butterfly with a riot of colours and patterns on its nether wings, Ben.
A perfect capture with great sharpness. The plain green BG is vital to the appeal of this image.
